Business Story

Why this business was started

As someone who cares for the environment, I wanted to start changing small daily routines in my life, seeking new ways to recycle and reduce plastic use. Switching the shower gel bottles to soap bars was a good decision, however most of these soaps were making my skin dull and dry. I did a bit of ingredients research and realised that I could give a try to making my own soaps; ultimately, why not being the one who decides what goes on my skin? I have always been a homemade skincare supporter. I firmly believe that most beauty products, (definitely soaps!) prepared with ingredients from your kitchen are far more effective than any other commercial product, as good as that may be. Just for the simple reason that the properties of the products you use go into your skin completely unadulterated, therefore healthier. And of course, there is also the creative side, soap making has endless possibilities!

The reason of selling this business

Unfortunately due to family circumstances I am not able to put onto the business all the time and dedication that requires in order to be successful.
